TSA workers on the job without pay treated to breakfast at Albany Airport

January 15, 2019 07:07 PM

COLONIE - Tuesday marked day 25 of the partial government shutdown and it's continuing to impact TSA agents and air traffic controllers at Albany International Airport.

The federal employees are working without a paycheck, and passengers have not seen any delays associated with the shutdown.


Around 50 air traffic controllers and all TSA officers -- which we're not told exactly how many due to security reasons, have missed one paycheck due to the shutdown and the airport wants to make sure the workers know their work is appreciated.

There was a free breakfast and luncheon for TSA officers and air traffic controllers, but an added bonus was actor Treat Williams, who was making and serving pancakes that he brought from Vermont along with some syrup.

He said he was originally going to just drop off the mix, but when airport officials asked him to actually serve the pancakes, he said of course.
